In the walls, in the walls . . .

So I've been inside for days, no not always inside...I do walk down the path, dodging the neighbours' motorcycle parked there, past the bougainvilleas that need trimming and the budding grapevines to get to the mailbox. 
My excursion. 
Other than a cough which I attribute to seasonal allergies I'm doing ok.  The husband's job is considered essential and he's thrilled to be working. People still get locked out of their homes and safes still need new combos for the gov't. 
We've got TP and paper towels. Food is in good shape. 
I am in desperate need of a hair cut and am thinking about shaving my head. I always have short hair but it's way too long for me now. We shall see if I can deal. 
Here's a bingo card to use during quarantine.

Peace and out.

30 days in the Hole

It's really not so bad as long as there is food and drink in the house. We have several streaming services so there is a good selection of movies and shows to watch.
I've got tons of books on my Kindle so no excuse there.
Bloodshot comes out on digital on the 24th so there's that.
Outlander I can watch on the computer on Saturday night.
Husband is working, they are an essential service.
Peace to all

So I.....

was diagnosed with pneumonia and finally am feeling like a human being again.

It started with a cold, then  bronchitis and whammo pneumonia. The hallucinations were the best though, life size mah jong pieces waiting for me to match them. Hundreds of slot reels spinning...

The coronavirus outbreak scares the shit out of me, no lie. I have successfully avoided contact for 2 weeks but my pantry looks a bit grim. I could send the husband to the market, but even with a list and photos, he shops weirdly.
I so want to see Bloodshot but I don't think I can tolerate a theater. Guess I'll have to have delayed gratification for that one. Shoot.
Vin for the husband, Sam for me. Sigh.

So that is it peeps.

Still around

This is what I'd like to have. A fruity drink with blueberry eyes.

Going to have some much needed surgery on Tuesday (not a boob job or a tummy tuck, something much more important). It's day surgery in at 8, out at 2 hopefully. But it will solve some problems.

Holidays were ok. I thought after everyone left, I'd be able to have  the back bedroom back and finally get the office I've dreamed of.  Move the desk and computer out of the bedroom, set up my stationary bike, set up the tv, and be able to work away in peace. But no. I won't go into it, but I'm not happy about it. 

A balmy 61ยบ (16C) outside. Bright and sunny with a touch of breeze. Cold inside the house. I've got some fire logs, and I guess I'll have to try to turn the box and open it. Someone set it on it's side in the log holder and it's a tight squeeze. 

So that's it. I'd like to see the year go better than it has so far (and it's only 10 days old).

Another School Shooting

A 16 year old boy shot 6 of his fellow students. As of this time 3 a
re dead, and he's in grave condition since he shot himself in the head. Why? 
I just want to sob. 

02 November, 2019


We went to a performance last night and really enjoyed it, Rita Rudner at Cerritos Center. The second act, which we skipped was Louie Anderson. Not a favorite. We went for a late dinner at a restaurant called Wood Ranch. It was really good. Tonight we will go to a concert for the RBCCA featuring a troupe called Cafe Musique. 2 nights out and then the rest of November will be quiet.

Turn the clocks back tonight. I think I will attempt church tomorrow. Been a while. Sometimes I don't know what I believe or don't believe. 66 years and now I look at things differently. Whether it's right or wrong I don't know. More confused than ever.

Smoke in the Air

The air is filled with the smell of fire. The Getty Fire is about 15 miles north of us. This is closer than any of the fires last week, so it stands that the smoke will be heavier. I shut the doors and don't go outside unless I have to.

Surgery awaits in January. Got an approval from the insurance but it expires Christmas Eve. So the referral people at the medical group will need to work their magic. Won't be anything big or exciting, but it's necessary.

I'm going to try out my Instant Pot tomorrow. That's scary for me. But if it goes well, it will be a great dinner.

Time change this weekend. Need it. Pounding my head on a wall again.

Peace and out.

More Alaska. More Rain.

 Was too cold to use the pool.

This is Seattle, before we left the dock. 
 This was part of a child's play area on deck 16 where the buffet was and if it was sunny and warm, would have been kids all over.
 Our patio, nice to sit on and watch the ocean...rather bumpy though on the open sea. Thank goodness for seasick meds and bracelets.
 Husband looking at artifacts in a park near Juneau anchorage
 Coming into Juneau
  We were parked in the furthest berth at Juneau. Had to bus it from town to get back to the boat.
 Weather improving
 Husband just enjoying his first free drink on the boat....endless cocktails

At the dock in Juneau. Wet and cold, and it didn't improve all day.

It's the largest state in the US and we only saw a small portion.
